out in salt lake city, and he was brought back people saw in him the ceo alkt that he could still talk about today and employ it at the state government level. and for the first year and a half or so, i think the people were satisfied with what they saw. but then there was this social conversion and the policy shifts that came with it and as he started to run for president and now he's going to lose that state dramatically to president obama next month. so i think that we saw a glimpse of it again when this was a tunnel ceiling collapse toward the end of his tenure as governor where he was a good strong leader, he create ad a stem-to-stern review and laid it out for the city of boston and the state of massachusetts, but that was gone then so quickly. and so people there thought he was a good executive when he was engaged as an executive, but they fell out of love with him when they saw he was too much of a politician. >> it's interesting that he might be the guy to build you a tunnel, do that sort of technocratic, to get your olympics on. it doesn't require saying i think he's a h

envoy was in the city for talks with president assad. the world does not stop for the u.s. presidential race. and tomorrow night, both president obama and governor romney will surely need to lay out their plans for the way forward with both iran and syria. if this on the table, and if so what in the world is it doing on a political table when this is not about politics? >> the iranian thing, the mystery of that this morning, we were talking approximate this before, is who leaked this, what was their intent, regardless of that what's the impact in the dpee bait tomorrow night. there's theories it was a hostile intent to derail any direct talks between the u.s. and iran. i can see how it's impossible to know before tomorrow night, but i could see how this could play to the president's favor. because iran is one of the places where romney has tried to stake his claim that he is tougher. we're four years closer to a nuclear weapon, blah-blah-blah. this lets the president say look, i can't discuss everything that may be under way, but we're going to explore every peaceful solut

incentivize more participation. through small donor matching programs like in new york city and a variety of states around the country, right now there's a big campaign in new york state to try to get public financing passed. governor cuomo is a big supporter. there's federal legislation. the real challenge is a political one, not pool see one. there are solutions to these issues. the real question is whether we can build the political will to adopt anything that puts some of the sanity back into our political system. >> scott, the argument here is it's not just money out. it's got to be people in. wisconsin has a long tradition of organizing, of populism. is wisconsin the place where we can start looking for solutions for money out, people in? >> certainly we saw in the last two years in wisconsin with the agenda of governor walker and the attacks on workers here and the wisconsin way of life, that people have mobilized and are funding against it. in wisconsin we were able to get the billboards taken down, the voter suppression billboards that were funded. so there is a great and massive mo

the ballot. it's one thing if you're talking about the school board race or city council race. when you're talking about the top of the ballot, the presidency, then the idea that there's a dilution of american citizens voting for the american president is only because we have this archaic system of the electoral college, right, which changes state by state, the value of your vote. the real issue is students in swing votes. >> i would say local elections bh matter because i know i voted in local elections when i was in school. i know many people who get to know they certainly campaign on college campuses and tack about what they're going to do for the local community. this is an issue that we see time and time again. it's about people feeling students do not belong but students are a huge asset for the ways i just mentioned and, above all in new hampshire, the state speaker of the house was talking about the fact that the student population there does not belong and that they were going to pay -- not pay taxes and that they were going to help take people who lived in the state of new

for a family in the city is about $40,000. the starting pay for a 21-year-old teacher, $52,000 for eight months worth of work. i think that's doing all right. >> they don't work just eight months. >> yes, they do. >> you're a teacher. you understand that just because you're not in the classroom doesn't mean that you're not working for your students. >> most people would take that deal that i get three months off during the summer to also work at my own pace with none of the people who i'm supposed to be being paid to educate in the same place as me. >> so i'm a little surprised because you're an educator. my experience of being both myself an educator and the child of educators isn't that people are just sort of flaking off -- >> take the summer off? >> it's an easy job. >> they weren't doing that -- if that's not what's happening and people are working straight through the summer, then how do we keep getting these results? the fact is that we have found many schools throughout the united states of america in some of the worst and best circumstances that are performing and one of t
